A documentary programme assembled by J. M. Cohen
Much has been said about the liberalisation of Spanish culture. Censorship of books and periodicals and the ideological direction of students are said to be on the way out: a new press law seems to grant greater freedom, though it also imposes higher penalties.
J. M. Cohen has visited Spain to record conversations with various people in the intellectual world, both Castilian and Catalan, in Madrid and Barcelona.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
